Giveaways Galore!

A few years ago, a publisher was doing a big giveaway at Dear Author, and I won an advance copy of Kaki Warner's debut novel, Pieces of Sky. It instantly became one of my all-time favorite romance novels, and I emailed Kaki to tell her. Lovely woman that she is, she not only emailed to thank me but she also became the very first person to subscribe to my blog.

At the time, none of my books had been published, and it didn't occur to me that an author I admired would be excited to hear from me. In fact, I remember feeling nervous about emailing her. I hadn't written a fan letter to an author since I was ten years old. Now that I'm an author, I can tell you that it's an amazing feeling.

I've discovered some of my favorite authors through giveaways, and I hope that someone will feel the same about my books.

Playing It Close, the second book in my London Legends rugby series, comes out on April 14, less than six weeks from now. Want to read it before it's released? I'm giving away one advance digital copy to someone who leaves a comment on this post before Tuesday, March 11th. I'm also giving away three more to people who comment on my personal blog

Whether you win it or buy it, I hope you'll let me know what you think of it. I've just launched a separate giveaway for anyone who helps me spread the word about Playing It Close. You could win prizes for talking about the book online.

Some of these are things you can do without reading the book - such as publishing the book cover and buy links on your blog, or tweeting about the giveaway, or adding the book to your Goodreads shelves. But if you read the book, then you can also write an honest review and earn more points. Please note that I want honest reviews. Writing a glowing review will not make you more likely to win, and writing a negative review will not disqualify you from winning.

Leave a comment on this post to enter to win an advance copy of Playing It Close. To enter the separate giveaway for a $50 gift certificate, bracelet and London Legends field bag, use the Rafflecopter below. I hope you read and enjoy Playing It Close! a Rafflecopter giveaway
Playing It Close by Kat LathamPlaying It Close

Book two of the London Legends

Where do you go to escape everything when you're one of the most famous rugby players in the world? For Liam Callaghan, that place is a remote lodge on Venezuela's Caribbean coast. Perfect, except he doesn't exactly want to be alone with his thoughts. Enter Tess Chambers, the ultimate distraction.

Still reeling from a professional disaster that's made her all but unemployable, Tess understands the desire to move through life as somebody else. So when instantly recognizable Liam uses a fake name, she runs with it and creates a temporary new identity of her own.

Their time spent together in paradise is idyllic but brief—after one passionate night, Liam wakes up to find Tess gone. Returning to London, he's shocked to learn she's taken a job with his team's new sponsor. As the Legends' captain, he'll have to not only figure out how to work with the one woman who ever left him wanting more, but also convince her that their feelings in the present mean more than any lies they've told in the past.
